First rib resection
A First rib resection is a surgical procedure used in humans to treat thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS). It is often accompanied by scalenectomy, or removal of the nearby anterior scalene muscle. It involves the surgical removal of a segment of the first rib, which is the rib closest to the head, under the collar bone.
